Transcript for New Jersey couple get married and begin their life together after cancer
Finally tonight, when the road together officially begins after the chemo ends. It's "America strong." I'm so lucky to be the one that you love. Reporter: That's Jillian and max from north Jersey. To always be there through thick and thin. Reporter: And those vows, through thick and thin, have a special meaning for these newlyweds. Over the past year, and this long road that it's been, I hadn't pictured a wedding. Reporter: Two years ago, Jillian, only 25, diagnosed with stage two breast cancer. We had always talked about a future together. And none of that was able to then happen. Reporter: She would go on to have a grueling year. A mastectomy, chemo, and radiation. Max by her side the whole time. So when it came to the last round of chemo, max had an idea. I'm planning to surprise her by asking her to marry me. Will you marry me? Wait, no, really? Yes or no? Yes! Reporter: But that's not the end of this love story. A nonprofit stepped up to help, providing a wedding dress that Jillian had been dreaming about. Oh, my god, really? Yes. I can have that love story. I can pick up my life. Reporter: And finally, the wedding day. I can't thank you enough for breathing life back into me five years ago when I had almost given up on love. Reporter: For the couple that survived so much, their wedding day, the best way to start the rest of their lives. It was amazing, because it was a day about us. I actually stopped at our reception and looked at my mom, and I started tearing. I was like, this is the best day of my life. I wanted to freeze the entire day and never have it end. Here's to many more great days for the newlyweds. They have earned it. Thanks so much for watching. I'm Tom llamas in New York. "Gma" first thing in the morning. David Muir will be right back here tomorrow night. Have a great evening. Good night. Be right back
